And some mornings deserve a steaming hot cuppa, a good book, risk be damned!
Fortunately for me, there aren't that many things I would gorge on willy nilly, though mind you I do believe I could eat my body weight in bread.
But home made biscotti is one of them.
Coffee's true mate, it is the sure and definative 15th century hottie that beckons again and again.
I've made the traditional Almond and Orange biscotti out of Prato, earlier on.
This twist on the traditional is simply wonderful and the very best way to pay homage to Nature's most passionate nut ~ the pistachio.
Lemon zest and sweet dried cranberries come out to play and the three together are simply naughty and oh so nice!
